Welcome to Northern House School Website



The year ends with the release of our pupils’ progress and attainment data across the curriculum.

Detailed analysis of progress made by all our pupils  tells us that 100% of those pupils who have been at this school for at least one year – that’s 74 -  made better than expected progress across the whole curriculum.

As if that’s not enough, our SATS results for key stage two pupils have delivered no fewer than 7 pupils with level 5 in English Reading,4 pupils with level 5 in the ever-so-tricky Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation test, and one level 5 result in Maths.

A level 5 result at primary six is higher than national expectations for any pupil, even those studying in the very best mainstream schools.

We’ve never had such good results in our school. They reflect not only on the diligence of the pupils, but also on the school’s relentless focus on standards. I am sure you will all join me in congratulating our teachers and assistant teachers for helping all our pupils achieve so much.
